The secret sauce of weight loss

Think back for a second.

How did you get to where you are, in regards to your body?

Did you get to where you are by overeating one slice of cake or eating too much at one Thanksgiving dinner?

Or was it more like a week’s worth of bad-food-choices?

A month of bad habits? Or two?

Not likely.

My guess is that wherever you are (whether that’s weighing more than you want or eating things that don’t make you feel good) is the result of many months or years of micro-decisions.

Micro-decisions consisting of eating things you didn’t really want.

Or keeping eating when you were already full.

Or just finishing off that box of crackers while you were reading an article in your favorite magazine.

These are little decisions…that are made over and over and over again.

So, why do we think that 8 weeks worth of dieting or a cleanse to “kick-start” your efforts is going to change the way we’ve been doing things for years.

It’s not.

What will is the ability to make months and years of micro-decisions in the opposite direction.

To say:

“Nah, I don’t really want more than a bite of pie.”

Or “Actually, right now a big salad sounds much better than a sandwich.”

Or “What my body really wants right now is water, not sweet-tea.”

Over and over and over again.

This need to reverse your day-to-day decisions may or may not be obvious to you.

What is often not so obvious, is how to make these new decisions - the ones that take you where you want to go - just as easy (or easier) than the old ones that landed you where you are right now.


It’s the secret sauce.

The magic pill.

The grease between the gears.

The difference between being a bottle of fine wine that gets better with age, instead of turning sour and bitter.

Most people don’t know to go for ease.

But now you do.
